Re: Invisalign with Attachments AND elastics?

You'll be alright.

I'd be ecstatic knowing my ortho is using elastics, means he knows how to use this tool(invisalign) effectively.

Re: Cavities & Dental work with Invisalign

a mid course treatment might be needed.

I know I had my cavities filled recently and my essix retainer does NOT fit at all anymore. The fillings actually helped my bite out.

Re: snug fit disappearing by week 2

I use denture cleaning tablets to clean the trays.

get a glass of water, put your trays in while you eat, pop a tablet it and watch it fizz and clean your trays right up.

Re: How painful can invisalign get?

it's nothing to fear.

Its like after a workout and your body is sore. To some that's a good thing, physically and mentally proves that somethings moving, however once the trays settle no pain doesn't mean its not working.

Re: Is invisalign really invisible?

If you keep it clean and the trays fit good Id say its about 70% invisible from a normal face to to face conversation distance. This is because saliva collects between the trays and teeth and make the plastic shiny. However, From across the room 95%.

Re: Can Invisalign widen arches or do I need a palatal expander?

Mine is. My premolars are flared in so it gives the impression my arch isn't wide. I explained my concern and once the consult was over with he concluded that invisalign, combined with his experience, he can fix it.

Re: Clear drinks with Invisalign

Dont drink anything besides water with trays in, or you'll end up like me and have 5 cavities. I brushed my teeth but that 30 minute window that the drink sat on my teeth was all it needed as those 30 minutes accumulated over the course of the treatment. I ended up getting a cavity between my two fr...

I brush mine after every meal, and when I don't have a toothbrush I just swish some water around and spit it out.
